About the Ford GT… “Ford had the weapon of choice for the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans and it was piloted by Americans Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt. The team had to fabricate a roof “bubble” to accommodate the helmet of Dan Gurney, who stood more than 6 feet, 3 inches tall. The team led all but the first 90 minutes of the race and defeated the factory Ferrari 330P4 by nearly four laps. Ford wasn’t concerned about Ferrari; Ford was only concerned with making their cars go the full distance. The #1 Mk IV seemed to cruise effortlessly to the finish. The efforts of Ford, Shelby American, Gurney and Foyt resulted in a truly great, all-American victory. ”
